1 H8628 Blow [H8798] H7782 ye the trumpet H6726 in Zion H7321 , and sound an alarm [H8685] H6944 in my holy H2022 mountain H3427 : let all the inhabitants [H8802] H776 of the land H7264 tremble [H8799] H3117 : for the day H3068 of the LORD H935 cometh [H8804] H7138 , for it is nigh at hand;
2 H3117 A day H2822 of darkness H653 and of gloominess H3117 , a day H6051 of clouds H6205 and of thick darkness H7837 , as the morning H6566 spread [H8803] H2022 upon the mountains H7227 : a great H5971 people H6099 and a strong H1961 ; there hath not been [H8738] H5769 ever H3254 the like, neither shall be any more [H8686] H310 after H8141 it, even to the years H1755 of many H1755 generations.
3 H784 A fire H398 devoureth [H8804] H6440 before H310 them; and behind H3852 them a flame H3857 burneth [H8762] H776 : the land H1588 is as the garden H5731 of Eden H6440 before H310 them, and behind H8077 them a desolate H4057 wilderness H6413 ; yea, and nothing shall escape them.
4 H4758 The appearance H4758 of them is as the appearance H5483 of horses H6571 ; and as horsemen H7323 , so shall they run [H8799] .
5 H6963 Like the noise H4818 of chariots H7218 on the tops H2022 of mountains H7540 shall they leap [H8762] H6963 , like the noise H3851 of a flame H784 of fire H398 that devoureth [H8802] H7179 the stubble H6099 , as a strong H5971 people H4421 set in battle H6186 array [H8803] .
6 H6440 Before their face H5971 the people H2342 shall be much pained [H8799] H6440 : all faces H6908 shall gather [H8765] H6289 blackness.
7 H7323 They shall run [H8799] H1368 like mighty men H5927 ; they shall climb [H8799] H2346 the wall H582 like men H4421 of war H3212 ; and they shall march [H8799] H376 every one H1870 on his ways H5670 , and they shall not break [H8762] H734 their ranks:
8 H376 Neither shall one H1766 thrust [H8799] H251 another H3212 ; they shall walk [H8799] H1397 every one H4546 in his path H5307 : and when they fall [H8799] H7973 upon the sword H1214 , they shall not be wounded [H8799] .
9 H8264 They shall run to and fro [H8799] H5892 in the city H7323 ; they shall run [H8799] H2346 upon the wall H5927 , they shall climb up [H8799] H1004 upon the houses H935 ; they shall enter in [H8799] H2474 at the windows H1590 like a thief.
10 H776 The earth H7264 shall quake [H8804] H6440 before H8064 them; the heavens H7493 shall tremble [H8804] H8121 : the sun H3394 and the moon H6937 shall be dark [H8804] H3556 , and the stars H622 shall withdraw [H8804] H5051 their shining:
11 H3068 And the LORD H5414 shall utter [H8804] H6963 his voice H6440 before H2428 his army H4264 : for his camp H3966 is very H7227 great H6099 : for he is strong H6213 that executeth [H8802] H1697 his word H3117 : for the day H3068 of the LORD H1419 is great H3966 and very H3372 terrible [H8737] H3557 ; and who can abide [H8686] it?
12 H5002 Therefore also now, saith [H8803] H3068 the LORD H7725 , turn [H8798] H3824 ye even to me with all your heart H6685 , and with fasting H1065 , and with weeping H4553 , and with mourning:
13 H7167 And rend [H8798] H3824 your heart H899 , and not your garments H7725 , and turn [H8798] H3068 unto the LORD H430 your God H2587 : for he is gracious H7349 and merciful H750 , slow H639 to anger H7227 , and of great H2617 kindness H5162 , and repenteth [H8737] H7451 him of the evil.
14 H3045 Who knoweth [H8802] H7725 if he will return [H8799] H5162 and repent [H8738] H7604 , and leave [H8689] H1293 a blessing H310 behind H4503 him; even a meat offering H5262 and a drink offering H3068 unto the LORD H430 your God?
15 H8628 Blow [H8798] H7782 the trumpet H6726 in Zion H6942 , sanctify [H8761] H6685 a fast H7121 , call [H8798] H6116 a solemn assembly:
16 H622 Gather [H8798] H5971 the people H6942 , sanctify [H8761] H6951 the congregation H6908 , assemble [H8798] H2205 the elders H622 , gather [H8798] H5768 the children H3243 , and those that suck [H8802] H7699 the breasts H2860 : let the bridegroom H3318 go forth [H8799] H2315 of his chamber H3618 , and the bride H2646 out of her closet.
17 H3548 Let the priests H8334 , the ministers [H8764] H3068 of the LORD H1058 , weep [H8799] H197 between the porch H4196 and the altar H559 , and let them say [H8799] H2347 , Spare [H8798] H5971 thy people H3068 , O LORD H5414 , and give [H8799] H5159 not thine heritage H2781 to reproach H1471 , that the heathen H4910 should rule over [H8800] H559 them: wherefore should they say [H8799] H5971 among the people H430 , Where is their God?
18 H3068 Then will the LORD H7065 be jealous [H8762] H776 for his land H2550 , and pity [H8799] H5971 his people.
19 H3068 Yea, the LORD H6030 will answer [H8799] H559 and say [H8799] H5971 unto his people H7971 , Behold, I will send [H8802] H1715 you corn H8492 , and wine H3323 , and oil H7646 , and ye shall be satisfied [H8804] H5414 therewith: and I will no more make [H8799] H2781 you a reproach H1471 among the heathen:
20 H7368 But I will remove far off [H8686] H6830 from you the northern H5080 army, and will drive [H8689] H776 him into a land H6723 barren H8077 and desolate H6440 , with his face H6931 toward the east H3220 sea H5490 , and his hinder part H314 toward the utmost H3220 sea H889 , and his stink H5927 shall come up [H8804] H6709 , and his ill savour H5927 shall come up [H8799] H6213 , because he hath done [H8800] H1431 great things [H8689] .
21 H3372 Fear [H8799] H127 not, O land H1523 ; be glad [H8798] H8055 and rejoice [H8798] H3068 : for the LORD H6213 will do [H8800] H1431 great things [H8689] .
22 H3372 Be not afraid [H8799] H929 , ye beasts H7704 of the field H4999 : for the pastures H4057 of the wilderness H1876 do spring [H8804] H6086 , for the tree H5375 beareth [H8804] H6529 her fruit H8384 , the fig tree H1612 and the vine H5414 do yield [H8804] H2428 their strength.
23 H1523 Be glad [H8798] H1121 then, ye children H6726 of Zion H8055 , and rejoice [H8798] H3068 in the LORD H430 your God H5414 : for he hath given [H8804] H4175 you the former rain H6666 moderately H3381 , and he will cause to come down [H8686] H1653 for you the rain H4175 , the former rain H4456 , and the latter rain H7223 in the first month .
24 H1637 And the floors H4390 shall be full [H8804] H1250 of wheat H3342 , and the fats H7783 shall overflow [H8689] H8492 with wine H3323 and oil.
25 H7999 And I will restore [H8765] H8141 to you the years H697 that the locust H398 hath eaten [H8804] H3218 , the cankerworm H2625 , and the caterpiller H1501 , and the palmerworm H1419 , my great H2428 army H7971 which I sent [H8765] among you.
26 H398 And ye shall eat [H8804] H398 in plenty [H8800] H7646 , and be satisfied [H8800] H1984 , and praise [H8765] H8034 the name H3068 of the LORD H430 your God H6213 , that hath dealt [H8804] H6381 wondrously [H8687] H5971 with you: and my people H5769 shall never H954 be ashamed [H8799] .
27 H3045 And ye shall know [H8804] H7130 that I am in the midst H3478 of Israel H3068 , and that I am the LORD H430 your God H5971 , and none else: and my people H5769 shall never H954 be ashamed [H8799] .
28 H310 And it shall come to pass afterward H8210 , that I will pour out [H8799] H7307 my spirit H1320 upon all flesh H1121 ; and your sons H1323 and your daughters H5012 shall prophesy [H8738] H2205 , your old men H2492 shall dream [H8799] H2472 dreams H970 , your young men H7200 shall see [H8799] H2384 visions:
29 H5650 And also upon the servants H8198 and upon the handmaids H3117 in those days H8210 will I pour out [H8799] H7307 my spirit.
30 H5414 And I will shew [H8804] H4159 wonders H8064 in the heavens H776 and in the earth H1818 , blood H784 , and fire H8490 , and pillars H6227 of smoke.
31 H8121 The sun H2015 shall be turned [H8735] H2822 into darkness H3394 , and the moon H1818 into blood H6440 , before H1419 the great H3372 and the terrible [H8737] H3117 day H3068 of the LORD H935 come [H8800] .
32 H7121 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call [H8799] H8034 on the name H3068 of the LORD H4422 shall be delivered [H8735] H2022 : for in mount H6726 Zion H3389 and in Jerusalem H6413 shall be deliverance H3068 , as the LORD H559 hath said [H8804] H8300 , and in the remnant H3068 whom the LORD H7121 shall call [H8802] .
